A Statue to Jules Durand

Les Amis de Jules Durand is an association dedicated to the memory of Jules DURAND, a social activist sentenced to death for what he was, the secretary of Le Havre’s Coal Porters’ Union, a CGT affiliate at a time when there was only one central labor federation in France. Durand was sentenced to capital punishment on November 25, 1910. At last, 100 years after the injustice, on 15 June a full-fledged public rehabilitation has been organized and his memory has been honoured as it should.
